Pelosi’s Proposed Trip to Taiwan Wins Bipartisan Support

On July 28th, the U.S. Congress fully supported the proposed trip to Taiwan by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Despite serious warnings from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), members of both parties urged her to visit democratic and autonomous Taiwan.

 Pelosi is the third-ranking heir to the presidency, and she will be the highest-level American politician who has traveled to Taiwan since 1997. She said that America’s support for Taiwan is significant.

 Last week, the Chinese Government had threatened “serious consequences”, if Pelosi visited Taiwan as planned.

 Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.), the chairman of the Senate Republican campaign arm, said, “It’s important that she goes and it’s important eventually that Biden gets a backbone,” and “We’ve gotta stand up for our allies”.

 Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) said “a major foreign policy crisis” would occur if Washington bows down to (Communist) China’s threat by canceling the visit.

 Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, a Republican, also called on Pelosi to visit Taiwan and ignore (Communist) China’s threat. He holds the view that if we cannot even protect an American Speaker of the House, why should Beijing believe we can help Taiwan survive.

 House Armed Services Committee Chair Rep. Adam Smith (D-Wash.) said, “I just don’t think we can let China dictate to us where the Speaker of the House travels to.”Congressman Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) shared a similar view that the Chinese Communist Party’s military response to the visit “would be the worst thing they could do.”
